Applying Basic Child Protection Mainstreaming: Training for field staff in non-protection sectors. Facilitator's Guide

A field manual on basic and effective child protection methods meant to train humanitarian workers - whose focus is not specifically child protection - to help them think through how their areas of work can contribute to child protection, and give them the opportunity to plan and to take some actions to increase protection of children through their own work. The training manual has been field-tested in Sierra Leone, Gambia, Indonesia, Haiti and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where children and youth are the most vulnerable to abuse, exploitation and trafficking. The training touches upon the practice of engaging children (the complex concept of child participation) in assessments, implementation, and evaluations taking into consideration children’s perspectives and needs. This training manual was produced by members of a child protection task team under InterAction’s Protection Working Group.
